    Im 38 lead a very active life, I’m a career firefighter, workout regularly (CrossFit style) do a lot of weighted step ups, can ruck level terrain without issue. i noticed over the winter on mt Washington, and just this past week on rainier. I develop pain in my right hip when moving uphill under a load. It’s like an ache and it’s only in my right hip . It subsides right after the trip. It has never come up while doing lots of step ups with a weighted pack or any other activities .
    Anyone experience this? Not sure where to begin with preventive care etc.

    Maybe it’s a balance and coordination issue when moving on unstable/loose/snowy ground? Are you doing anything to train your balance and coordination?
